Intelligence and Bluster

Your Dominant Intelligence is Linguistic Intelligence

You are excellent with words and language. You explain yourself well.
An elegant speaker, you can converse well with anyone on the fly.
You are also good at remembering information and convincing someone of your point of view.
A master of creative phrasing and unique words, you enjoy expanding your vocabulary.
You would make a fantastic poet, journalist, writer, teacher, lawyer, politician, or translator.

What Kind of Intelligence Do You Have?

Someone had a quiz about which Easter candy they were, and I surfed over to Blogthing and found this one. There are 25 questions, which I take to mean some solid thinking went into the design of the quiz. This analysis is quite like me in many ways, though these days the 50-mumble forgetfulness - especially the 'tip of the tongue' search for words - is making me a bit nuts. Oh, and I am trying not to be insulted at the suggestion that I could become a politician.

Have fun!

On the knitting front, I finished the baby item I've been working on, and quite by accident found a very plain but matching button in the jumble in our seniors' group's storage. Our stash of completed Red Scarf items has reached 3 dozen, though I think we're all getting sick of red. One of our knitters has done 10 of these!!

This afternoon I found myself thinking of Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day. I was actually visualizing the book, since I forgot/didn't know that Disney has a video. As I left for my seniors' group meeting, I saw the top of our 40+foot palm tree being blown in circles. The last time we had sustained winds like this, most of the dead fronds were blown off the palm tree, which saved us many $$$ in tree trimming costs. So here are the lyrics to Blustery Day, just for fun.

Hum for a Blustery Day

"Where are you, Pooh?"
From: Winnie The Pooh and the Blustery Day
Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
Performed by: Sterling Holloway [Pooh]

Hum dum dum ditty dum
Hum dum dum

Oh the wind is lashing lustily
And the trees are thrashing thrustily
And the leaves are rustling gustily
So it's rather safe to say
That it seems that it may turn out to be
It feels that it will undoubtedly
It looks like a rather blustery day, today
It sounds that it may turn out to be
Feels that it will undoubtedly
Looks like a rather blustery day today

We've had the worst weather today, so I sat here and sang the Pooh song in my head (in his voice of course). I used to have a record album of Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day, so I have fond memories of that song.

Love the pix of the cats.

Has anyone seen the quiz about How Much Did You Pay Attention in High School? I can't find it anywhere, and didn't save it! It turned out I paid attention 57% of the time, which is about right.
